My Students

I teach third grade in a suburban setting outside Seattle. We are a busy group of students who love to learn and share our knowledge with others. Our school reflects the diversity that comes from being welcoming to immigrants: 10 languages spoken and 72% poverty living in temporary housing or homeless. We are blessed with many forms of instruction but we need support in using technology.

We are urban/suburban as in many of the housing areas we pull from are multi-family dwellings, but even in the single home dwellings, you can find multiple families.

Families travel 5 miles to get to department type stores and many depend upon welfare agencies to find housing and food coupons. While many of our families may speak a language other than English, they are not necessarily literate in their own languages. This has created a problem for communication or for finding translators to meet the needs of getting the students’ needs home to the parents and their wishes back to us.

My Project

As we begin the 2019-20 school year, we are still sharing computer carts within our building. The computers are not reliable and we only have access to them twice a week for about an hour.

By getting our own Chromebooks we have access when we need it without the scheduling and negotiating with the other classrooms.

As we are asking our students to take the state test on line, having access to functional technology is extremely important. We are then able to use our LEGO Wedo Curriculum along with our blended technology when it best fits into our schedule. This also allows kids to be able to access them for research as the need arises.
